I like your devotion towards skeletons. Quality shit-post too (I'm actually not sure which). Thumbs up, lets get your skeleton rolling.

RE: What are you playing until release?
@jahlon eh actually, I've been following AoC for quite a while and from their BR mode, apocalypse, I personally don't think they'll get it released (or maybe released with a very bumpy delay like AoC: A) in 2019. As for fan base for AoC you can definitely tell there are genuine players interested in the game and also fanboys that will support it no matter what (like any other game of course), but a lot of people are starting to see AoC for what it is and less people seem interested. Some are either turned off by the direction the game has been moving towards, some have pointed out apocalypse is a pretty big cash grab (considering they even shut down the BR mode) while selling cosmetics (that are mostly dyed versions of other cosmetics - which is confirmed can be dyed in the actual MMORPG => people are just buying a red, blue, yellow of same costume that can be dyed anyways to the other colors). Some simply have a feeling of what the game plays out to be (expectation vs reality). While the hype train is definitely still there, I personally think AoC is DEFINITELY an overhyped game but definitely has enough potential to be a popular game.
Personally, I have played the BR mode when it is available. I think AoC is quite a nice game for a game that is still alpha. Things are pretty smooth if you have a good pc, but honestly, the optimization is shittier than you would expect even in an alpha game (yeah its horribly optimized for sure so if you are on the hype train for this game you better have a good pc).
I guess: TL;DR: AoC's "lift off" kind of depends on how much you consider it to be a lift off. Will it soar to rank 1? Don't think so. Will it be a decent/good game for a lot of people? Definitely.
RE: Games Without AH
I think games have their pros and cons with AH/no AH. For example, I think something like Drakensang Online does an extremely good job as a game without AH while ArcheAge's AH works extremely well for a game like AA. Too bad I don't have the time atm to discuss things in detail sorry xD. Out on vacation atm.
RE: Mentor system
sounds absolutely garbage. Just teach it directly, no need to give "special" perks to people who do it. This just makes alts more viable which sucks to begin with. If you need extra bonus for helping people on "specific things" that can be logged as quests, then that is all the more reason for the mentor system to not exist as you won't give a damn to teach the real details if it doesn't exist on your "mentor quest". Yeah, mentor systems are usually garbage because if you can simply narrow stuff down to things you can teach rather than learning, the game already failed and Fracture's horizontal progression sure as hell better not be some mentor-able garbage.
Basically, you rather they design the game well enough for it to teach itself, not some half-assed system that will never be good enough for a well made game because it simply narrows down all complexity into a few items on a checklist to check off. There are things people teach in guides because a mentor system for specific taught quests will just rush things that the player might not need to know and eventually forget (kind of like a crap tutorial).
RE: Alpha1 players willing to stream/share gameplay!?
Honestly if alpha 1 is only a tiny bit more than pre-alpha there isn't much to stream. A vid or two should cover everything.
RE: [One Sentence] What turns you off playing a game?
no PVP, bad balancing of skills, and lack of diversity in builds and gameplay.
